Forgive Me Please
September 8, 2006
Forgive me please when I act out,
for the pity parties stirred from a lot of self-doubt
Forgive me please for my silent voice,
for being bothered too much by another's noise
Forgive me please when I shout and fuss,
when I talk too much or in great anger cuss
Forgive me please for calling you names,
for gossiping and groaning because we're not the same
Forgive me please when I won't forgive,
God's told me it's wrong so I can rightly live
Forgive me please when I brag and boast;
it's inferior feelings, just so you I'll know
Forgive me please for picking you apart;
the words steal your joy and later tear out my heart
Forgive me please when I worry and fret,
for I'm human like you so don't be upset
Forgive me please when I act better than thou,
for indeed it's an act and you know this now
Forgive me please when I hate what I'm not,
just pray for me for that would mean a lot
Forgive me please when I bring in my past,
and make you pay for what another did last
Forgive me please as I beg your pardon;
for you'll need it too else your heart grow hardened
But most of all, I need God's forgiving touch,
and I know that I am, His Son meant that much…
